Im in the same boat! what is your goal? I would ideally love to be 65kgs. Right now I am 68.kgs. When i bought my dress i was 70.5kgs (January) and it was very snug and didnt sit quite how I wanted it to! I am hoping at 65kgs it will sit perfectly :)

Same as you! Would love to be 65....62 would be even better but highly unlikely!! Lowest i have been is 68.8 and atm i am about 70ish, not sure TBH.
I ordered mine in Jan at 76kgs and they ordered me a 16 as i have big boobs, They wanted to order an 18 but i said no! Cant wait to see how big it is going to be! lol

I had about 2-3 fittings once my dress arrived and I think the very last one was about 2 weeks before the wedding but that was designed to be the FINAL try on.

My final fitting will be hopefully 5 to 10 days before the big day. But I also have two fittings prior to that and the calico so hopefully all will be good!

Mine is Tuesday and I get married the following Saturday. They can do it at the last minute. If they tell you they can't they are big fat liars. Just tell them you want to leave it as late as possible to do the fitting so they can't claim you sprung it on them!

As long as the dress fits and doesn't slip they can do the length early. Then do the take ins at the last minute.

At 70.5kgs I bought the 10! it fit, but very very snug..I think my weight is very evenly divided over my body :lol: i just bought two size ten dresses this week for other resons so hopefully these few kgs off have done the job!!! best of luck with the last few :)
